Spec arrives in Cape Town!

To distract everyone from the rather awful cricket match we just watched (match-fixing if I ever saw it), have a look at some of the excitement from the Andrews household this past week.

My brother-in-law Spec (or Derek, to those who aren’t in the know) has been the focus of my blog just once before, when he turned 30 – click here for a reminder.

He arrived at Cape Town International Airport last Wednesday evening having flown in from Lanseria, so we went to collect him from his shortest flight ever – sadly I JUST missed the reunion hug after these two had been apart for a whole year… if you don’t count the weekend we flew up for my dad-in-law’s 70th in April.
